FORT HOOD — Soldiers with the 504th Military Intelligence Brigade had the opportunity Tuesday to learn how to become comfortable talking to members of the media by learning from the professionals themselves.
A journalist and photographer with the Killeen Daily Herald and a reporter from KCEN-TV Channel 6, the local NBC affiliate from Temple, helped teach the soldiers not only how to talk in front of a camera, but also how to be comfortable when interacting with members of the Fourth Estate.
“I think the training was awesome,” said Capt. Ashley Cooper, the brigade’s information technology officer in charge.
“Over my years in the military, I’ve never sat in training like this. To actually have you guys come out and actually do some of the interviews gives us an idea of how an actual media interview goes. I think it was pretty cool.”
